Hey guys,

I booted up my XP Pro machine for the first time this morning, and low and behold I got one of those "Password will expire in 11 days, do you want to change it...." popups.

I don't use any logon passwords on this machine. How can I remove this popup?


Thanks

Heeter

right click on my computer, go to manage
then user accounts, select your account (right click & go to properties), and tick "password never expires"

I can't right click on the account.

Is there maybe a regedit for this instead?

Thanks kC

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
